Welcome to the wacky world of 24-hour hacking news, where every day is a new adventure in the wild world of crypto. From phishing scams to rug pulls, it seems like there’s never a dull moment in the crypto space. So sit back, grab some popcorn, and get ready for a wild ride through the latest crypto heist, or should we say crypto comedy?
First up on our list of laughable hacks is the CloneX #240 and mfer #2424 and mfer #2801 NFTs, stolen by “Fake_Phishing182232” on Blur. These NFTs were then sold for around 3 ETH, and it seems like Chibifinance got rug pulled. Apparently, over $1 million worth of cryptocurrencies were drained and swapped for 555 ETH, which was then transferred to Tornado Cash. Talk about a whirlwind of chaos!
Next on our list is the AtomicWallet Drainer, who apparently has a laundering pattern akin to that of North Korea’s Lazarus Group. According to @tayvano_ and @zachxbt, this drainer has already laundered at least $12 million worth of ETH through the peel chain layering process and bridged them via the AVAX bridge. They even converted ETH to BTC using GMX and transferred the stolen proceeds from Ethereum to Bitcoin. It’s almost like they’re running some kind of twisted crypto laundry service.
If that wasn’t enough to tickle your funny bone, we also have the case of low-carb-crusader, who deposited a whopping 864 ETH (approximately $1.6 million) into Beacon Deposit Contract. This is almost as good as finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, except it’s, you know, illegally obtained.
But wait, there’s more! MiladyMaker #7073 and #5680 were also stolen by “Fake_Phishing182232” in what seems to be a never-ending cycle of NFT theft. And in case you were missing some good old-fashioned token drama, the Beamsplittr token ETH: 0x05c9B6764a153faF4262D3885A845AF694775953 has dropped around 75% due to a deployed centralized “collectTaxDistribution()” method that minted 9.99e12 tokens and swapped them for 32 ETH.
So there you have it, folks, the crazy world of 24-hour hacking news in crypto. It’s like a never-ending circus, but instead of clowns, we have hackers. And instead of cotton candy, we have stolen cryptocurrencies. It’s a wild ride that never seems to slow down, but at least we get the occasional laugh out of it along the way.
